Automated multiple data feeds were created using PADS4 software, delivering reliable data on a real-time basis from both
internal and external data sources. Introducing social media support in the Digital Signage system provided an ideal

displayed on multiple screens throughout the centre.
The Centre has won a Digital Screen Association Industry Excellence award and an INCON Digital Infrastructure Award for its
use of PADS4 digital signage solution.
